Because it's hard out here for an intern, Curbed searched for some of the best sublets available for the fall semester. These aren't the prettiest apartments on the market, and they aren't the most well-located, but they're some of the most reasonably priced units on the market. The apartments featured range from a $700/month bedroom in a College Park single-family home to an $895/month one-bed private basement room in a Brookland single-family home. Be sure to also submit an application for Washington Intern Student Housing, a short-term intern housing program located in Capitol Hill.
